Reception


Dear Parents,

Welcome to a fun filled summer term. We have already had a very exciting beginning to our new topic of ‘Holidays’ with a trip around the world!

All the children had to go through passport control and then were seated along-side their friends ready for the flight. After ‘taking off’ in the BSM aeroplane from the hall, we visited many different countries and experienced some interesting activities. The children had a great time. We will be continuing with our ‘Holidays’ topic for the rest of the term.

Towards half-term we will be focusing on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations culminating in a ‘street party’ with the whole school.

Next, we will be finding out all about maps and pirates! For our ‘Fabulous Finish’ to the topic we are planning a trip to Ufton Court. There will also be a ‘Sports Day’ this year where the children will take part in activities with their houses.

PE will continue on a Tuesday morning so please remember that everything needs naming (including your shoes). We will be continuing with our phonics every day, with new sheets on a Monday, so don’t forget those folders. We will be collecting in zippy wallets at the end of term.

Finally, towards the end of term, the children will be preparing to go into Year 1 and will have the opportunity to meet their new class teacher.

We are all looking forward to a busy Summer Term with so much to do! Let’s hope the weather is kind to us!

Kind regards,

Mrs Eyre and the Reception Team
